After earning her Bachelor’s in writing, music, and psychology from Southern CT State, Zaelyna Beck switched her focus from novel writing to television and packed her bags to pick up freelance gigs on a multi-city quest across the U.S. Her extensive background on hit shows for ABC, Freeform, and Disney+ led to her current role as a writers’ room assistant. She’s also developing her own pilots while seeking representation and staffing opportunities.
With an imagination forged by a rural community childhood, Zae crafts introspective stories about quirky, independent characters in formed-family dynamics. Her goal is to foster more inclusive content across neurotypes, lifestyles, & cultural backgrounds. Often geared toward a young adult demographic, her writing carries a dark yet whimsical sense of humor and frequently blends fantasy, scifi, or other speculative elements.
Zae’s latest pilot AWAKENING recently placed as Semifinalist with WeScreenplay’s Diverse Voices.
